    To the OP, I would be concerned that you view life with such a low perspective, but if you have genuine problems, such as losing any sense of meaning in life or loss of identity, it may help to talk about it in more detail. Don't worry that what you feel is abnormal, however, it is a natural human feeling, and perhaps what you need is something that truly arouses your passion, something to truly live for - it seems at the moment you have nothing to fulfil it. I have similar feelings too - I don't want to live a life with a 9 to 5 office job, go to work, eat and sleep for the rest of my life, but instead of accepting it and saying life is rubbish and becoming resigned, I want to do all in my power to make life how I wish it to be. That doesn't mean I WILL, but I will try my very best. This sort of perspective might be difficult to adopt, but as long as you can find happiness in your life, it doesn't matter what way you achieve it (apart from something bizarrely harmful like murdering or something..lol).
    I view life as a true gift, a short spark of consciousness to experience the world around us, and afterwards, eternal nothingness, so I would like to make of the most of the time in between.

    Life is like your favourite computer game (though it means a hundred times more). You either carry on and face the challenges until the end and experience many things along the way, and even make it onto the high scores board, or quit now and always be remembered as the sad loser who gave up.

    It sounds like you have symptoms of depression. You *can* get it sorted though. Start by going and see your doctor about it. Talk to your family about it if you can. There are various ways of dealing with depression: medication, counselling etc etc and it's up to you which way you choose. Just make sure you investigate fully the pros and cons of each treatment.

    You won't feel like this forever, even if it feels like it now. Some of my friends were previously diagnosed as being depressed and are now so much better having had treatment. You *will* get through it! The more you believe it, the easier it will happen.

    Does anyone else think it is utterly devoid of meaning, spent doing pointless and mundane things, coloured with misery and completely worthless? Does anyone just wish that they didn't wake up again each morning and can't wait to get life over with?

    I often wish I didn't wake up again in the morning because life is extremely sh*t at the moment. However it hasn't always been sh*t and I don't think it always will be. I've got ambitions for the future and I really hope my life will be easier to deal with once I've left home + all the problems I've got used to here. Life changes + it's worth sticking around just to find out what happens. Some bits are mundane but I think once you're able to feel less miserable then they don't seem such a chore.

    Actually ive had a lot of thoughts about life being pretty pointless and death being really annoying. Thats why I want to do somethign really meaningful with my life and make a real difference, because if I dont, noone will remember my name in 100 years, which sucks. Or you cna just have a lot of children and your legacy will live on with them. Imagine if you have 2 children who have 2 children etc etc. After 5 generations, you wouldve created 32 people!! After 15 generations 32768 people! hooray! you can make your own army.

    I have SO many theories on this subject.

    Do u ever think that absolutely everything around u (life if u want to call it) could be generated by ureself , and you are living a 'matrix' style existence in a world forged by ure own mind. I mean the only thing that u really know exists is ureself.

    Not really your theory is it!

    I have a theory in why I might believe in something after death.

    If there wasnt anything after death:

    Just think if you died now, you wouldnt remember anything, including you reading this or the rest of your life.

    If you died in 5 minutes time, you wouldnt remember anything or be conscious of anything in the last 5 minutes or the rest of your life.

    soooo

    There is something after death:

    Or you wouldnt be conscious of this moment and what you are reading now etc. But you are conscious of it all so there must be!

    Makes no sense but one day theyll erect great statues of me.

    Enjoying life is easy, as long as you go into everything with a positive attitude. I hae had a couple of brief periods when things haven't been going will, but they always pass. I noticed that when I'm not in a good mood, I actuvely try not to enjoy things. If you want to make your life miserable for yourself, it's very, just focus on the positive things and make the most of them, and you'll feel fine.

    If you feel like that, i would seriously consider seeing a doctor for depression. I hate hearing people saying things like this. I have lost 3 people aged 15-20 who would love to have their life back... try and see a doctor, there are so many great things in life that you should enjoy.
